AerCap to Open 20K-SF US HQ in Miami’s 830 Brickell Office Tower

Aviation leasing company AerCap will debut its US headquarters at 830 Brickell, a Class A-plus office tower under construction in Miami’s Brickell Financial District. The Dublin, Ireland-headquartered AerCap signed a full floor, 20,000-square-foot lease for the building’s 50th floor.

830 Brickell’s ownership was represented by Cushman & Wakefield’s Brian Gale, Ryan Holtzman and Andrew Trench. AerCap was represented by CBRE’s Scott Goldstein and Keith Edelman.

AerCap will join Microsoft, Thoma Bravo, CI Financial and others at the 55-story office tower, which is being developed by OKO Group and Cain International. According to the company, it is an example of the migration of technology, financial and global firms looking to expand their footprint to South FL.

“Miami offers a business-friendly environment, easy accessibility to our customers in both North and South America, as well as the amenities that attract the best talent,” said Bashir Hajjar, SVP and head of Americas of AerCap.
